Statement from Ali Rezaian - November 22, 2015

WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- "Recent news reports from Iran have indicated that my brother, Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, has been sentenced for crimes he did not commit. Although we cannot confirm the validity of these reports, we do know that the Iranian judicial process around Jason's case has been profoundly flawed from the outset. The confusion and lack of transparency throughout these proceedings has only made this situation more difficult for Jason and our family.  My brother is an innocent man and a well-respected journalist. As our family gathers for Thanksgiving, we remain hopeful that Jason will soon be reunited with us."
